Cleveland Wants To Bill Tamir Rice Family For EMS, Ambulance Services

Rice Family

The city of Cleveland wants to bill the family of Tamir Rice for ems and ambulance services he received after being shot in November 2014. The 12-year-old African-American boy shot by white Cleveland police later died at a hospital. The two officers involved failed to administer first aid, and four minutes passed before an FBI agent tended to him. The city has filed a claim in probate court seeking 500 dollars for ems and ambulance services. Rice family attorney Subodh Chandra says his clients are already upset that a grand jury declined to indict the officers.

The city has yet to comment.
